That's why I just add a letter each year to the pot number. No one has to know which year it was made, but I do.

That way, if someone asks me to make an additional piece with the same glaze, I’m not sitting there scratching my head and wondering what glaze I used. Customers seem to like knowing they can ask me to make a mug/canister/bowl/whatever in the same fashion as the piece they already have.

Now, I’m thinking about changing the stamp a tad each year. Norataki changed the color and style of the stamp on the back of their china every few years. Collectors -me being one - can date the piece by the stamp. Perhaps a different wash on the bottom of the piece each year???? Blue year. Green year. RIO year.
